“A hidden gem”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

From the outside it's just a plain door in a wall but inside it is lovely. The room was spacious and the bathroom traditional although the water pressure in the shower was poor.

There was a good breakfast in the courtyard and relaxing lounge areas.

In the Mellah and close to the spice market.

Aziz was very helpful and friendly.
I would happily stay here again.

We wanted a riad in Marrakech medina, and after looking at tripadvisor and the Rough Guide, decided on Riad Bayti. It was hard to find, and our taxi driver had to ask several times, but he dropped us outside what appeared to be a shop and told us how to get there. The initial impression was not great: the market seems dirty and there's hard sell, but once we reached the Riad, which turned out to be easy, we knew we made the right choice: our host, Aziz, told us everything we needed to know and the staff was incredibly helpful. The breakfasts were great and changed daily. The situation, about ten minutes walk from the main square, the Jemaa el Fna, was perfect to explore the medina and the nearby attractions, the El Badi and Bahia palaces. Despite the bustle outside the riad was really quiet, and the overwhelming smell of the spices was exquisite. And, best of all, the meal we had in the Riad was the cheapest and best we had in Marrakech despite going to only recommended places!
When we go back to marrakech we will stay in the Bayti again!

Room Tip: I guess that the rooms on the terrace, with air conditioning, must be excellent in spring-autumn.

Thanks a lot for the beautiful review, we are very happy because you enjoyed your trip and you took time to discover everything you can see in Marrakech or the main things because it's not easy to do everything in some days. We hope to see you again in our riad for other Holydays.

Let’s start with the less positive aspects and get them out of the way. The Riad Bayti is not cheap unless (as we did) you get a cheap deal. It’s hard to find – one minute away from Bab Mela square but tucked away in an alley. Sometimes, if you want something, you have to keep asking. Free tea and cakes seemed to be included, but never came our way. Perhaps we should have asked. That’s it.

It’s beautiful in there. We had a rooftop room which we couldn’t fault in any way. Lovely en-suite shower room, comfortable bed, heating, very nicely done out. Little touches. Breakfast was very good. There is a splash pool, but it was January. The staff are lovely. Free wifi. We felt pampered.

We stayed two nights, but decided to find this place in advance of our stay. Smart move. They made us feel very welcome and showed us round.

Room Tip: Our roof top room "Sabaa" was lovely.

Thanks for your review and in fact you have free Tee with typical home made cakes. You just have to ask when you want to have it once a day. Just remember for the next time you will want to come.

We stayed at the Riad for five nights at New Year. A traditional riad within the Jewish quarter, so all the rooms are grouped around the open courtyard. The riad has four levels with two rooms and terrace on the roof. The ground floor has many quiet seating areas to relax in with good Wifi and secluded lighting and a small plunge pool.

As with many of the Riads within the city wall, it is reached by narrow alleyways and in this case via a small spice Souk which has wonderful aromas.

The Bayti is south of the main square, with a walk of about twenty minutes through narrow lanes lined with traditional small shops and business' giving you a great taste of what you will find when you enter the square and main souks.

Breakfast is taken in the courtyard, served by Aziz, his brother and their friendly staff. We breakfasted and also had some well cooked traditional Moroccan evening meals here and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. There are plenty of other places to eat within two minutes walk of the riad as this is a popular area

Being on the south of the city it was easy to get to from the airport and it was a lovely quiet oasis to escape from the hectic main square.

A great base for your trip to Marrakech

Room Tip: All rooms are individual, with the two on the roof, no issues with noise etc. so the is a peaceful p...

Stayed here Nov 2013. Very pleasant staff all round, quiet riad in a side street in the old Jewish quarter 100 metres from the local road. Very well looked after by all the friendly and helpful staff, good evening meals available, simple but very adequate breakfast included. Very good room with private bathroom set around a square small central courtyard with plants, tables, side rooms and a decorative pool. A pleasant roof terrace where you could sit and eat on a nice day and despite position very quiet inside the riad. When we stayed there were just few other guests. Approx 1 Km form Jamaa el Fna square and near a number of other sites worth visiting. Totally recommend this raid due to both staff and location.

Very happy, a good location, great to be in the spice market and only 10 mins walk from the centre of everything. Aziz the manager was a delight and really customer service orientated which was a pleasant surprise. We had our 14 year old son with us and found a good mix of things to do that meant everyone had a great time. Do let them organise transfers from/to the airport - this made things very easy and it's only 10 mins away.

We had a great time. After a greeting and having some mint tea and little cookies we put our stuff in our room before heading out. The location is so cool. Just into a market area but not buried so deep like some of them are. We have friends who booked into a similar place and had a terrible time even finding it. They would only walk in and out together even in daytime. The manager Aziz could not have been nicer and the staff were all great. The room was wonderful too. We were on the top floor which only has two rooms with the rest of it being sun deck. There are great lounges were we spent some of the afternoons lazing, reading and chatting. Oh, good coffee and okay breakfast too. We would definitely go back.
